Took my parents here, and I thought that there would be some flat areas that would be suitable for them. I didn't expect them to walk to the bottom, but they only walked 200 metres and it got too steep for them. after paying an admission fee of 9 pounds. My husband and I enjoyed all of the garden, including... More

Lovely garden to visit, great variety of plants in bloom even at this time of year. The water garden is a specially attractive feature.The garden leads down to the beach where there is a snack kiosk, but there is a very narrow set of steps to access the beach and would not be suitable for everyone. Great views from there.... More

If any of your party is a little unsteady of their feet it is worth telephoning the Gardens to book an electric wheelchair as we took our ordinary one and it was hard work. The gardens are wonderful, something new around every corner. The water garden was so serene and you could only hear the birdsong and the waterfalls. My... More

This not overly huge piece of Cornish wonderful ness has captured my heart . I have made two visits over the years and both times this place has taken my breath away. The gardens are amazing but the beach at the end is a truly spectacular find. I ve been lucky to visit during spells of fine weather and on... More

A very pleasant place to spend an afternoon. The garden was in '50 best gardens in England ' list and we thought it deserved that place. Well worth a visit if you are a garden enthusiast. The cafe and shop were also spot on.

Spent a beautiful sunny afternoon strolling through the glorious gardens at Trebah with our dog. Some stunning examples of trees and gorgeous views, and I especially enjoyed the numerous large tree ferns, monkey puzzles, palms and bamboos. The valley of hydrangeas is superb and even though they were beginning to fade at this time of year, the sea of subtle... More

Was pleasantly surprised by this attraction. Lovely planting on large scale and the views! Lots of photo opportunities. Very dog friendly- they even give a little treat to the doggie visitors. The beach was a little gem and again dog friendly. If there was one thing I would add to make it even more enjoyable it would be toilets at... More

Visited recently in glorious sunshine which helps - lovely place. Well worth it for the walks in the gardens alone, but the hidden jewel is the beach. Plan a picnic and enjoy the day. Save room for buying ice cream from the café but don’t drink too much as there are no loos at the beach!

I have glimpsed the beach at the foot of the gardens many times when sailing up and down the Helford, and knew its connection with the D Day landings. But I had no idea there was a garden here. What a find. I have to say this is one of the nicest botanical gardens I have visited - in the... More
